I am giving away a $50 bookstore gift certificate (first prize) and a print copy of the new book (second prize). To enter, you need to comment on a post, and include your email address (obfuscated if you wish). The more posts you comment on, the greater your chances of winning. I've written a different essay for each post, so you won't get bored.

Now, on to the snog! Here's a brand new, exclusive excerpt! 

~~~ 

I drag Theo toward the front of the store. He's silent, distant, not looking at me or at the cute blonde cashier. While she rings up our purchases, he fiddles with the car air fresheners hanging near the register. He doesn't object when I pull out my credit card. I can see that he's floundering once again in a swamp of self-doubt.

He does grab the bag though, which I appreciate since it weighs far more than I would have expected. He strides toward his car with those long legs of his, leaving me to hurry after him.

"I'll drive," I announce when I catch up. "Give me the keys."

"Don't tell me what to do."

"But you seem upset..."

The alarm beeps and the door locks click open. "Get in, Rachel."

He focuses on the road, driving with detached precision. I keep quiet, not sure how to handle this latest mood.

We pull into the parking lot behind his condo. He kills the engine then sits stiffly behind the wheel, making no move to get out.

He's hurting, I can tell. I wish I understood why. I place a tentative hand on his solid bicep. He doesn't shake it off as I feared he might, but he doesn't soften either. "Theo? What's wrong? What did I do now?" Had I offended him by taking charge of the interaction in the store? Somebody had to?

"Nothing-nothing, really. It's not you, Rachel. It's me. I just can't do this."

"This? You mean the bondage? Of course you can."

"Honestly, I have no idea how to go about it. I've got no knowledge, no experience. All I've got is a bunch of kinky porn."

"And excellent instincts." I stroke his slightly stubbly cheek and turn his eyes toward me. He looks desolate, lost. "You have to trust those instincts, Theo." I lean in to brush his obdurate lips with mine. "I do."

"You'd trust a total amateur like me to tie you up? You're crazy. I could really hurt you."

"We'll go slow. We'll have a safeword. And we've got those humongous shears to cut me free if necessary."

The faintest hint of a grin tugs at his lips. This time when I bend closer to kiss him, he kisses me back. He cradles my breast as our mouths meld, flicking at the nipple with his thumb. My lust comes roaring back. The vicious pinch he delivers makes me gasp and moan. By the time he releases me, I've soaked his shirt, not to mention his car seat.

"You really want this, Dr. Zelinsky." It's a statement, not a question. His eyes are diamond-bright, diamond-sharp. He strips me to my essential self.

I nod. "Don't you, Theo?"

He licks those ripe, sensitive, boyish lips. "More than anything in the world."

As it happens, today is also my birthday. To celebrate, I'll give away a copy of my BDSM erotic romance Coming in Costume to one person who leaves me a comment. Just to get you warmed up for the tour and all! Be sure to include your email in the comment. And go visit Elisabeth Joye's blog tomorrow, for the start of the tour.
